RealAid has the potential to be a blockbuster brand name demonstrating an intuitive confidence with consumers of all ages and demographics.

In today's world, product branding is big business. In the first three quarters of 2010 (January through September), U.S. businesses spent more than $94 billion in advertising fees alone. Two of the largest in this group were health-industry leaders Johnson & Johnson ($950 million) and Pfizer ($896 million)….(Source: Kanar Media). The American consumer is being skillfully trained to find importance in branding - creating identities, personalities, and relationships around products we recognize, purchase, consume, wear, and use.

Whether conceived within company think tanks, by corporate branding/identity agencies, or by consumers themselves, nearly all major product brand names fall subject to in-depth consumer research to ensure the name connotes and reinforces the desired brand image, is easily recognizable and memorable, and instills the desired positive consumer reaction to stimulate interest and motivate purchase.

Once these hurdles are successfully passed, brand names are then processed through trademark application, a legal process to ensure new names can and will be protected as a trademark for the product(s) or service(s) they represent.

A Name in Search of a Product
When a great name comes along, businesses and consumers take notice. RealAid is just such a name.
